The best I've found.

By Hails

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

I got Fakeup in the Flawless Four set and instantly fell in love with it. I didn't typically use a concealer before to brighten up my under eye because other products were so disappointing and with my fair skin products tend to make me look washed out or they were too dark. Never a happy medium. Fakeup is by far the best under eye concealer I've used. For now, I'll continue to buy this until I discover the next best thing. Benefit really outdid themselves with this. And the name is soooo cute! ??

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

        I had high hopes for this easy-to-apply concealer, but it didn't do all that it promised. Initially, I had no problems with it settling into my under-eye creases, but after about an hour, it did just that. It looked pretty noticable too, which was even more unfortunate. The product was also extremely greasy--I think this was intended to be a "moisturizing" concealer, but it was far too oily. I would definitely not recommend using it on blemishes--the oilyness would just contribute to any acne break-outs. Oh well, I had to return it--what a disappointment!

            I bought this product for my under eye area. I've been using powder concealer for years and was nervous the powder would start to dry and age my under eye area now that I'm getting a little older. This concealer is very hydrating and goes on easily. I don't have very dark circles and I don't think this would be the best coverage for someone who does.

                I have been looking for a good under eye cover up that doesn't cake or streak or look unnatural and I finally found it with this product. The fact that it is coverup and moisturizer in one easy step is perfect. I plan on getting one to carry with me, you just never know when you need to freshen up those undereye circles.

                      A:

                      Fakeup features a hydrating ring of Vitamin E & apple seed extract to help relieve dryness. It provides natural looking coverage and can be layered underneath additional concealer such as Boi-ing for added coverage. To ensure smooth application, we recommend exfoliating your skin and using a primer prior to concealer such as The POREfessional.

                      This product's intended use is as a concealer to hide dark circles and diffuse fine lines for a silky smooth, ultra-natural look. This product can be applied before or after foundation application. Stroke Fakeup underneath each eye. Using your ring finger, pat gently outward to blend. You can also use it to touch up throughout the day. This “double duty” hydrating & concealing formula won’t cake, crease or settle.
